Jakks Pacific is a big player in the toy industry but doesn’t venture into (non-electronic) games too often. This Pirates of the Caribbean-themed game Master of the Seas, designed by Forrest-Pruzan Creative, is an interesting first attempt at a strategy game.

The game comes with 3D ship and terrain pieces, as well as a navigation compass to measure movement – yes, it uses miniature game movement mechanics. Your job is to collect specific treasures (randomly distributed face down) using dice based movement and combat. You can hire crew to improve your dice results, so there is some decision making.

While not aimed at the serious gamer, the game might contain some cross-over appeal.
